On "Justice Frustrated" and the need to focus on making every day in court more efficient: DAKSH releases book on judicial delays
The book contains chapters authored by Kerala High Court judge, Justice AK Jayasankaran Nambiar and Senior Advocate SS Naganand, among others.
Any talk of access to justice in India inevitably circles round to the almost perennial, much-lamented issues of case pendency, backlog, and delays in justice delivery.
The criticism of a legal system plagued by endless litigation involving financially-debilitating lawyer's fees and innumerable court appearances is trite.
In an effort to bring new learnings on how judicial delays are understood, Bangalore-based civil society organisation DAKSH has released a new book titled Justice Frustrated: The Systemic Impact of Delay in Indian Courts. The books attempts to carve out the reasons for delay and its repercussions on the lives of litigants and society.
